Thank thee so kindly for accepting my invitation! :) My husband, Timothy, is tutoring me as I go along. I do not know very much at all about computers nor this site. :) Thank thee for noticing the cap. It took me a LONG time to make up my mind on that. I will see if Tim will help me load some pictures on my page as time affords, and that 1800s Slat Bonnet, in the light the picture was taken in, has a blueish grey hue to it. I do not wear either one of them too much, as I do not wish to get something so nice soiled!! :):)
Thank again, for thy comments and for accepting the invitation I sent to thee.
Somehow my post 'Mis-Guided' got put up twice. I have deleted the second copy, which is the one you posted to. I have moved your comment, and responded, to the remaining 'Mis-Guided' thread. Sorry about the confusion.
I can laugh at the many absurd notions people conceive anymore. "You're the ones with the horse and wagons, aren't you?" To the which I reply, "I don't see a horse. Do you? There are many of them under the hood of our vehicle though." Yet one of the most interesting ones was a couple thought we were Italian, nothing else but Italian. I was puzzled about that one.
Thank thee for thy Friendship. My wife has appreciated speaking to thee and sending and receiving messages from thee. It has been encouraging to her, more than thou art aware of. She will fill thee in on what decision she has made later.
